It turned out that Cisco’s $3.2 billion acquisition of WebEx in 2007 included many products that Cisco didn’t care much about. The company recently announced the WebOffice End-of-Life along with other WebEx-related software, stating that all WebOffice services and support will be discontinued as of November 30, 2014.
Perhaps it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise since the software has been clunky and outdated with no major development or upgrades since 2005. Now as the product’s EOL kicks in, WebOffice users are forced to extract their data and figure out how to move to another platform.
Caspio is an ideal alternative for Cisco WebOffice users looking for a modern and easy-to-use platform to migrate their data and web applications. With a secure and reliable online database at the core, Caspio enables business users to organize, store, and share critical data and create all kinds of data-driven apps without coding.
Here are the top reasons why Caspio is a good alternative for WebOffice projects:
- Flexible Import — Easily migrate your data in or out of Caspio using step-by-step wizards. We support standard data formats such as Microsoft Access, Excel, CSV, tab delimited text, and fixed-width text. Once imported, the data serves as the foundation for a variety of application interfaces such as web forms, reports, charts, maps, calendars, etc. If you have a large or complex migration project, our data experts are available for a project consultation to advise on the best approach.
- Ready-Made Applications — If you are in a hurry to find an alternative for an existing app, Caspio also provides ready-made app templates to use “as is” or further customize based on your exact requirements. These templates range from task management, membership systems, online ordering, recruiting, and more.
- Unlimited Users — Unlike many software companies that charge for users on a per-seat basis, Caspio includes unlimited users in all of our plans. In fact, Caspio has led the industry offering unlimited users since its founding in 2000, and we continue to be fully committed to fair, flexible pricing that enables our customers to deploy their applications on any website for any number of users.
- Powerful Data Management — Effective data management is essential in today’s fast-paced and ever-evolving business environment. The way you manage your data day-to-day has a huge impact on the overall efficiency and execution of your operation. With Caspio, not only can you capture, edit and manage data using a secure and centralized cloud database, you can also create highly-customized applications with powerful ad hoc reports and automated workflows adapted to the way you work.
